Thanks for the query.
Usually after 34 weeks the possibility of the change in position of the baby decreases as the size of the baby increases and the amount of liquor decreases.
So as your doctor told there is less possibility of vaginal delivery.
Because usually cesarean section is preferred in case of primi with breech presentation and sometimes in multies also.
You didn't mention what injections your doctor prescribed. Anyhow follow her advice and go for repeat scan.
Take care.

Thanks for writing to us.
At 35 weeks of pregnancy with a breech presentation, the chances of baby changing its position to vertex are less but not impossible. You can get yourself re assessed at 37 weeks to see the presentation.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. You can consult me again directly through my profile URL
